The "Band des Bundes" (literally, the Band of the Federation) is located north of the "Großer Tiergarten Berlin" park and north of the "Haus der Kulturen der Welt" (formerly Kongresshalle) and the Reichstag building. It was built after German reunification according to the award-winning competition design by Axel Schultes Architects (1992).

The development of the Spreebogen (the area around the characteristic bend in the Spree river) with the Kanzleramt and Bundestag buildings makes reference to the representative government buildings already dominant in this area since the 19th century.
